anybody been taken to court for child contact and they have only been awarded indirect contact? Ex recently took me to court for contact with child, child is one he hasn't seen her since she was 3 weeks old been in prison, restraining order, domestic abuse, alcohol abuse etc etc never provided anything for her just wondering what my chances are of him just getting indirect contact are? He's admitted to the judge the domestic violence and there are police reports to back everything up.

if it helps, my ex and i went to court for access and he was awarded weekly one hour visits at a contact centre.
He is also an alcoholic and a drug user.

o dear why do these courts thinks its in the childs best interest to have contact with alcoholics and drug users. How long does the supervise contact last I've heard its not a long term thing?
